Ostra--San Antonio, TX

We went to Ostra for Christmas dinner. There, we enjoyed prawns, short ribs and crab tamales. The dish as shown was $40. Perhaps almost as important as the food itself was the festive River Walk environment. I strongly recommend being seated outside, as that's a big reason to eat at Ostra.

You'll need valet parking at the Mokara hotel, but your validation lasts until midnight.

Mr. Kano Peruvian Restaurant--Santa Clara, CA

My wife and I came here for exotic seafood Friday night and weren't disappointed. I got the Pescado a lo Macho, a seafood mix in a creamy sauce. This included mussels, shrimp, squid and a fish fillet at the bottom of the pile. White rice came on the side.

My wife got the Arroz con Mariscoz, a paella dish which I liked even more than mine because of the soft, fluffy flavorful rice.

The dishes were respectively $18 and $19--a good value.

Brown Chicken Brown Cow--Campbell, CA

he Honolulu Zinger at BCBC has the perfect mix of hot, sweet and savory and highly recommend this decadent burger. Though it comes with brie and bacon, the jalapeno and pineapple jelly is the main event. Because it was so juicy, I needed a knife and fork to eat this.

If you like things that go cluck, my boy had a chicken club sandwich, which he enjoyed. More importantly to me, it filled him up--not easy to do for a fifteen-year-old!

The Honolulu Zinger: Jalapeno and pineapple jam tops this sandwich. The white stuff is brie.
